Ranty Scoop! There's A New God In Town

Proof indeed that truthseekers have a sense of humour.

Very witty.

Unfortunately, i think a lot of people actually like being told what to do and what to believe. It saves them the effort of actually having to think.

I often thought that if I discovered undeniable evidence that there was no god I would tell not a single soul.

My motto has always been "Do what you need to do to get you through the day" (with an added caveat that you should not harm anyone else by doing whatever you do to get through the day).

I know that at least 60% of the worlds population believe in one or more gods and their faith makes them do good things (on the whole). Imagine if you stripped away a belief system overnight? The results, I think, would be horrible.

I wouldn't worry about it. Even if you had absolute proof that there is no god people who believe simply wouldn't listen.

People will believe whatever they want to believe, regardless of facts or evidence.

Very true.

Infallible or not, from the sound of him at the end of this very amusing and thought-provoking clip, he should stop smoking those cheap fags or he won't have many millennia to go!
